Visitor Tips and News About Wonder Tower (Closed)
We loved this! What a great way to spend an afternoon -- and a dollar! We went ahead of tourist season, so we had the whole place to ourselves. The owner was more than happy to show us some of his favorite items, and let us guess at what they could possibly be. I think we might've guessed one almost correctly. The place is full to the brim with rocks, bottles, and a variety of antiques, not to mention the oddities like the two-headed calves, animal bones, and rooms made of petrified wood.
The tower itself was fun to go up into. Wear good shoes, because the stairs are almost like a ladder going up to the top level. I don't know if we saw six states, but we sure had a wonderful afternoon. Bring a few extra dollars to spend on rocks or antique bottles. We wish we had![Jamey, 06/27/2013]
